Last-Minute Luxury Gifts for Her

We are getting down to the wire here, with just a little over a week before Christmas. It can be hard to find the perfect gift, but it doesn't have to be. With online shopping, you can find some really great items she'll love, and ones that  don't cost a fortune either.

Etsy can be a great place to find something beautiful and unique. Some items on Etsy have a longer processing time, but some, particularly the jewelry and candle shops, tend to have things ready-made. Thus you're bound to find some very beautiful and unique gifts. You just have to check the deadline for Christmas in each shop's announcements. Some will even work with you on rush orders, so it never hurts to ask!

The Most Wearable Nail Trends from NYFW Fall 2013


There was a lot of nail art at New York Fashion Fall 2013. Nail art is most popular on the west coast and has been gradually making it's way east. After many celebrities including Kelly Osbourne and Anne Hathaway sported the nail trend on the red carpet these past few months, the trend has exploded. It's no surprise it was all over the runway during fashion week and will continue to be a huge nail trend for 2013 and will last into the fall and winter months.

For those of us who can't get into the nail art (like me), there are some much more wearable nail trends for 2013. Designer Phillip Lim featured a glossy winter white, while others had their models wearing muted tones of grey, olive, and nude. Black was also a popular nail color on the runway; the main difference in the previously trendy color being a textured or matte finish. Proving that oxblood ( a deep shade of red) will be a color trend lasting into Fall, Zac Posen and Danijo featured glossy oxblood nails. Several other designers went with classic red nails, including Badgley Micshka, who debuted Deborah Lippmann's red metallic shade with a matte finish called "Red Silk Boxers" (pictured bottom left) to be a part of her 2013 holiday collection.

Whenever new trends in nail color come out, I tend to save money by mixing my pre-existing colors. Create your own oxblood shade by adding a few drops of black to a classic glossy red polish. You can achieve the popular matte finish on any of your favorite shades with the Lippmann Collection Flat Top the Matte-Maker Top Coat Nail Polish.
